WILLIAMSTOWN -- Thomas Denenberg, director of the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vt., will deliver a free lecture at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Sunday, Aug. 4, at 3 p.m.
The talk, entitled, "Winslow Homer and the Poetics of Place," is the third in a series of lectures that focus on the relationship between artists and the locations they depict in their art. Denenberg’s lecture will examine Winslow Homer’s long relationship with the community of Prout’s Neck, Maine.
This vacation spot on Maine’s famously rugged coast served as Homer’s inspiration and home for the final decades of his life. It was there that he created some of his most iconic paintings, including "Saco Bay," "Summer Squall," and "West Point, Prout’s Neck."
The Clark is located at 225 South St. For more info: clarkart.edu or 413-458-2303.
